Robert - did this work for you? I upgraded SuSE 7.3 with their
2.9.9p2 rpm and also have these lines in here -- it is working fine.

I made one change

< Protocol 1,2
> #Protocol 1,2
> Protocol 2

In general, I suggest using your favorite compare utility to compare
sshd_config and sshd_config.rpmnew and make a judgement on the value
of the rpm package defaults.

Below is a typical protocol 2 log from putty to my SuSE sshd.

Best regards,, dproc
